Scruffy “Freaker” Models Keep Our Liquids Insulated This Holiday Season

From: Queerty


Looking for a funky last minute stocking stuffer? We just discovered this new line of designer koozies. You know, those things that keep your beer bottle from sweating in hot weather?

 Freaker USA claims its products will keep your “liquids insulated in style.” That’s great, but we’re more interested in their scruffy male models. We can’t get enough of these beer drinking bad boys.











A Vintage Holiday Tradition: The Wish Book

1962 Sears Wish Book
 The very first Sears Wish Book, (then known as the Sears Christmas Book) came out in 1933.  It started a tradition that made the Wish Book an American holiday icon.  Featured items in the first catalog included an electric (battery powered) toy automobile, a Mickey Mouse watch, fruitcakes, Lionel electric trains, a five pound box of chocolates, and live singing canaries. The books also continued another time-honored tradition: Checking out attractive and sexy models displaying underwear for sale.  For many men growing up, these catalogs became one of their first experiences at enjoying printed erotica, and more than a few of those young guys were not looking at the ladies in their bras and panties.

 Economic times were still tough (thanks to the Great Depression) in 1933 and for most people, the catalogs offered their only chance to "wish" for all of the wonderful things presented...but even that proved to be great fun because so many fun items were displayed. But this was also a catalog designed to make money, hence everyday basics such as affordable underwear, shoes and shirts were staples of the books in addition to the items that were less-necessities driven such as jewelry.  For those with a good income, it was easy shopping.  For others, it was free entertainment and a chance to dream about a future when money would be more plentiful.   The Wish Book tradition continued into the twenty-first century with Wishbook.com, first launched in 1998.  Specialty catalogs dominate the business these days.

Younger people raised with computers have no knowledge base to compare against with regards to the limitations of shopping (including shopping for erotica) back then.  Many people nostalgically think of the Wish Books as toys, but a large number of pages were actually devoted to gifts for adults. Consider that the 1968 Sears Wish Book totaled 605 pages with 225 pages devoted to toys and 380 pages to gifts for adults.
